StaticWind commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:

Ahh, this is the game I've been excited for since its announcement! It's always great to see that people are liking the game. :)
Anyway, the central hub is looking pretty awesome. Personally, the stats tied to gear is a downside if I end up having gear that looks cool, but gives me stats I really dislike. Other than that, the customization is looking great!



StaticWind commented on Poll: As amiibo Expands and Evolves, Which Fea...:

Honestly, I'm not sure where I stand on amiibo. I got one as a gift, and amiibo in general seems pretty neat. I'm just not sure if I'd like to go through the trouble of those that run out of stock in less than two seconds.



StaticWind commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:

Naturally, I'm excited for the new Zelda game. It looks amazing, and the larger areas already have me anxious to have the game in my hands. :D
However, Xenoblade Chronicles X has been something I've been very interested in. Unfortunately, I haven't played Xenoblade Chronicles, so I'm hoping it'll pop up on the eShop. Even so, the world in X looks so beautiful, and so vast. I'm not even sure if I can describe the game with words. Right now, I'm simply waiting to see how it turns out in the end, but I have a weird feeling I'll love the game.



StaticWind commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 14th January, Wi...:

@Obito_Sigma Luckily, I can watch it — if I wake up at 5 AM to get ready for school earlier. I might as well set my alarm clock. :D
For once, I don't have many things I really want them to show. I'd prefer to just go in with no expectations. However, Nintendo, you wanna know what will really make my day?
Starts with "Shin Megami Tensei" and ends with "x Fire Emblem". :|



StaticWind commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:

Although not my first, but it's been my favorite Zelda game ever since I got it via the 3DS Ambassador Program. It's such an awesome game that I even forget from time to time that Capcom developed it. :)
Oh, and the music is pretty neat too. It's hard to forget the music in the Minish Village. ^^



StaticWind commented on Happy New Year From All at Nintendo Life:

Ah, I always fail to stay awake once I get near 12 AM. I can hardly remember the fireworks. I even forgot to play New Leaf at that time. ^^'
Anyway, Happy New Years NintendoLife! Hopefully we all can have a better year than before. :)



StaticWind commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Games that are a guaranteed purchase are Zelda, Splatoon, and Xenoblade Chronicles X. I'm sure I'll get most of what's on the list, but I don't want to go overboard with savings. :( I will be taking a look at Devil's Third, though. I haven't paid attention to it.



StaticWind commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

This should be interesting to see. No matter how I try, I can never seem to get into Pokemon. I have Black 2, but for some reason, I can't seem to get far without getting slightly bored. I've been thinking about getting one of the more recent games to get into, but maybe I should go with something different (according to the poll). I'm not giving up, either, because I've always heard the games are great, and I want to join the fun. :P



StaticWind commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

Dang, that's a tough decision! Every Super Smash Bros. is very interesting and unique in their own ways. I really like each one and still play them to this day!
Small gripes aside, Smash Wii U has loads of content that I seriously appreciate more than ever before! The huge amount of music, the better online modes that are offered, balancing that seems to be the best so far (considering its huge roster), FE:Awakening characters, beautiful visuals, and there's still more to come! It's clear the team has been working hard to provide the best they could.
64 has the classic, simple style I love, Melee still never gets old with its fast game-play, and Brawl gave me character interactions that my kid-self would always dream of. My favorite Smash game is probably a question I'll never be able to answer, but in terms of quality in comparison, Smash Wii U is the winner! :)



StaticWind commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Melee Player Ta...:

Rosalina & Luma's definitely in the group of stronger characters. A favorite Mario character being super good? Sweet. :)
"So that’s definitely Nintendo sort of appealing to casuals, but that takes away a huge aspect of trying to be strategic in that game."
I disagree. Sure, edge-hogging has gotten me free KOs at times, but when I think about it, it's not as strategic in comparison to the newer mechanic. You'll just have to adapt to it and find ways around it. Understand what works, what doesn't work, and get creative. As a matter of fact, I like it better. From all of the experience I've had, there are two things important to the new mechanic that can really help you out:
1. If they re-grab the ledge without getting hit or stepping on a platform, they won't have any invincibility.
2. You can purposely grab on to the ledge immediately after they do to force them off of it.
With these two things in mind, you won't believe how many KOs I've gotten. Ya just gotta think differently, and see how you can use your options. It is the only way you can tip the scales! Ahaha. Haha. Ah...



StaticWind commented on Video: Did You Know Gaming Explores Cancelled ...:

Well, I've always been fine with the soccer and other sports spin-offs, so I might have liked that one. I'm still waiting for a new Mario Strikers. :3
Haha, those animations were quite funny to see. I never thought I'd see Yoshi slam his own kind to the ground like that.



StaticWind commented on The Father Of Video Games Ralph H. Baer Passes...:

Wow, that's unfortunate. Perhaps I'm too young, as I was not aware of his contributions to the gaming industry, but hearing about him now and what he did gives me some appreciation for him.
Please do rest in piece. I didn't know of your contributions until today, but they will be remembered.



StaticWind commented on Video: Two Smash Bros. Instructional Videos to...:

Oh, wow. I never knew, or noticed, that DI involves perpendicular inputs. That makes a whole lot more sense for me.
As for Nintendo's video, well, I guess they did show new players how to play, but the How to Play video in the game probably does more than that in about the same time frame. :P



StaticWind commented on Child of Light's Creative Director Paints a Pi...:

How interesting — I was just thinking about this game in class today. I'm very pleased to hear it was profitable! It is overall one of my favorite games, and it even introduced me to a pretty awesome composer (Cœur de pirate). I would certainly love a sequel of sorts. :)
P.S: I still would have loved to have Valiant Hearts on the Wii U. :P



StaticWind commented on Nintendo Joins "Creative Endorsement Program" ...:

That's interesting. Just for the "content creators that produce the most popular videos", though? Bummer, I guess.
I'm still waiting to see what they'll do about the whole YouTube thing. I have fun uploading Nintendo stuff, so I'd like to see what they come up with. :)



StaticWind commented on 10-Year-Old Gamer Thrashes the Competition at ...:

I saw it this morning, and it was nice to see. I later see everyone talking about how it's probably fake, and now I'm skeptical. :(
I'm just going to lurk around and watch what people say about this for a while. If I can just lurk around Smashboards and Reddit for a little while longer. . .



StaticWind commented on Eiji Aonuma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been...:

"So although we’ve been working on the game for quite some time, we didn't want to say it was being developed until we were at a point where we could proudly say that this is not going to be just another remake and that it's going to be worth your time."
That's great to hear. When I bought OoT 3D and finished it, I left feeling that a bit more could have been done with it, somehow. Now that I actually have to take better care of how I use money, I was indecisive a while ago about whether I should get this or not. For now, I'll just continue waiting to see what new features they show off.



StaticWind commented on New Study Finds No Connection Between Video Ga...:

Nice. A link would be nice, too. I'm sure plenty of people have figured as such, though. There's quite a bit to say revolving around the whole "video games cause violence" topic. All in all, I've been tired of 'em focusing on something so insignificant compared to bigger problems. :(
@Prime "tekken triple tournament 10"
Is it really that hard to figure out that he's kidding?



StaticWind commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Online Braw...:

Wha?! Wow, that's nuts! Hopefully it gets fixed soon. I think I'll be fine, since I haven't gotten a ban or anything yet. I've had to try a bit hard sometimes to not quit matches with a ton of lag, though. I mean, you get infractions if you SD on purpose, exit the match, or not move at all, right? :(
@RedKnightXIII Little Mac's fine. I don't think he needs to be nerfed or anything. He's the best on flat stages, and unfortunately there aren't any platform stages in For Glory (which would have been nice), so you'll have to pay close attention and find other ways to get him. Always fight near the ledge, or somethin'. :P



StaticWind commented on Video: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Opening Cin...:

I'm waiting for the day I get the game to see it. I've spoiled myself quite enough!
I'm hearing it's just full of recycled clips and gameplay. Honestly, with all of the work and effort they already put in (especially with character trailers), I don't mind. I don't think I'd call it "lazy".
